    Storm is a really decent, friendly and kind man. Please help in trying to locate him and share this with anyone you think might be in the region or might have crossed path with him. If you have any info, just get in touch, or if you're in the UK you can contact Sussex Police.

    Many thanks, everyone.

    Wow holy shit that makes me so happy! I’m super curious what happened, if anyone ever learns the details please post here. Every time someone goes missing my gut does a backflip.

    We got lost in the Copper Canyon in Mexico and did not return to Best Western in Creel and they reported us missing.
    Police found us 2 days later as we pulled back into Creel after overnighting in Urique and Batopilos.
    Stupidly we never thought to notify the BW we were OK.
    Luckily no media or relatives were notified they were looking for us.

    Probably same for this guy, just out taking care of himself having a good ride and not thinking about the World he left behind.
